Anybody know the story on where this emerged from? Wondering if someone finally sucked it up and bought that trunk load of tapes from the storage locker.

They somehow managed to release Playing > Supplication > Playing on a Live at the Cow Palace bonus disc way back in 2007, so I'm not sure it was really a recent discovery. But marketing is a many splendid thing.

Yeah except in the case of squandering it on limited releases, which I think is the dumbest thing I have ever witnessed. Expecting your ENTIRE potential audience to be there cash in hand at or near the time of release is about as near sighted as a grandma behind a microscope.

So, you take the stuff that circulates off the Archive & limit the release. How does this match up with the fundamental principal of the music and it being available to all? Then it also limits the revenue going back to the aging masters who gave us so much enjoyment over time.

Madness I tell you. Madness!
